The new issue of Thinking Cities magazine is available to view online now.
“2020 has changed the face of urban mobility,” says POLIS Secretary General Karen Vancluysen. “As COVID-19 has ravaged our cities and regions, they have had to respond to the unprecedented impacts of the pandemic on transport. The last issue of Thinking Cities, published in June
– at the height of the pandemic began to examine this, exploring our preliminary responses, and casting our eyes forward to how urban transport may continue to transform not just our transport services, but the entire meaning of sustainable mobility.
“Five months on, the pandemic continues to grip our cities and climate targets loom larger than ever. Many of the predictions made in June have come to fruition and many have no been quite so accurate. Nonetheless, what is clear
, is the zeal among local authorities, transport operators, and citizens, to pursue innovative – and exciting – changes in urban mobility that address the environmental sustainability, accessibility and inclusivity of transit offerings. This issue of Thinking Cities showcases some of the pioneering efforts being established by POLIS members, and others, in low carbon transit, road safety, inclusion, public-private partnerships and more.”
